Deputy Director, Criminal Enforcement Unit - MHRA
Andy Morling began his law enforcement career in the mid-1980s investigating fraud against the unemployment benefit system in the United Kingdom. At the end of the decade, he joined Her Majesty's Customs and Excise and was soon selected to join the Department's elite and globally respected Investigation Division as a specialist investigator. In this London-based role, Andy led complex criminal investigations into serious and organised international drug trafficking and fraud. Following a spell on secondment training law enforcement colleagues in covert surveillance techniques, Andy returned to frontline operational work as Head of Intelligence at the Serious Fraud Office. Here, his unit was responsible for understanding, identifying, and countering serious fraud, bribery, and corruption in major corporations. His next move was to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre of the UK National Crime Agency. There he led the NCA's efforts to tackle serious child sexual exploitation and abuse, with a focus on tackling online offending. In 2015, Andy was appointed to the Food Standards Agency to set up the National Food Crime Unit (NFCU). The NFCU was established by the UK government to address the newly identified criminal threat from serious fraud within global food supply chains. Since early 2020 Andy has been the head of the Criminal Enforcement Unit at the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which provides the UK response to the illegal trade in falsified and substandard medicines and medical devices.
